An isolated roadside stop leads to a night of suspense for a truck driver when a young woman appears seeking refuge after allegedly escaping her kidnapper.
The neverending highways of the United States can be a lonesome place for the recently widowed and exhausted truck driver Dawn (Pamela Jayne Morgan). After parking at a secluded rest stop and settling in for some much needed shut eye, she is startled by the frantic pleas of the distressed Phoebe (Juliette Gobin). The sudden appearance of the disheveled young woman makes Dawn immediately suspicious. As the night wears on the two women will divulge their tragic pasts and have to learn to trust each other if they want to get home, let alone survive the night. Over the hill and over the job, Morgan’s frank and rough Dawn is a unique heroine that is a welcomed addition to the neo-thriller canon normally populated by strong, stoic men. With her and Gobin’s excellent chemistry taking center stage, director/co-writer Max Strand creates a non-stop, edge-of-your-seat night from hell that never forgets its characters when the bullets start to fly in this locally produced, homegrown thrillride.
